To where it all began!

Uprooted from home
Planted into a new abode,
New faces, new places
New experiences galore.

Far from home, adjusting to the place
Every person around a foreign face
Days progressed, but life – standstill
Weeks and months and years to kill.

Children born and raised and fed
Every little need was met,
An emptiness still haunted her mind
Oh won’t the universe be kind?

Life had passed, the end now near
Made a wish, she shed a tear
A journey to home she must commute
Life spent uprooted, in death she’d find her root.


This is a work of fiction written for a Writing Challenge theme ‘Digging for Roots’.

This Year I Resolve…

This year I resolve to be happy… with myself… not dependent on others for my happiness! I have always linked my happiness to the presence of someone else, to his approval of the things I do, to his opinions about me and my work, to everything that lied outside of me. It was never about me so far… never about what I could have done for myself. However, things change, in fact, they must… that’s the only way we can adapt ourselves to the journey called life. I have also taken up this change… for good... for better... perhaps even for the best!

I have realized that happiness does not survive for long if it’s dependent on factors that lie outside of you. It has more to do with what lies inside. Take some time to think what makes you happy… Maybe it’s singing a favorite tune, playing an instrument, painting the colors of life on a white canvas, reading a funny book, writing a love story, penning every thought that takes birth in the fertile soil of the mind, a long chat with an old friend, a walk down the beach watching the setting sun… it can be just anything out of the myriad gifts nature has given us… you just need to find the one meant for you.
